Maternity & Infant Wellness Policy
Please be sure to read carefully. Scheduling a session with Kristal Bean Photography indicates you accept, understand and agree to this Maternity & Infant Wellness Policy. This information is outlined in every session contract, too.
I put maternity and infant safety as my top priority. You are required to disclose and reschedule if anyone in your immediate family has a fever or displays symptoms of illness. ANY contagious illness (even a cold) is cause for reschedule.
This applies to your entire household, not just your newborn, along with anyone you have pre-arranged with me to bring along and/or include in your session. Sessions will be cancelled and rescheduled if symptoms are present in anyone in attendance at the session. This is for the safety of your baby, as well as the others I photograph. I cannot risk jeopardizing the health of families, pregnant mothers and newborns that I photograph, nor do I want to spread symptoms to the families I serve.
Kindly understand that I cannot make a sick person look “not sick”, nor can I compete with the general discomfort that illness can bring, especially in children. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in rescheduling if you are/have been in direct contact with a contagious illness within 14 days of your session date.
A waiting period of two weeks applies to (re)scheduling a session if hand, foot and mouth disease has been in your household. This same two week waiting period, wherein the sick person(s) must be completely fever- and symptom-free without the use of medication, also applies if anyone in your family or anyone present for your photo session has had any kind of flu.
Should you need to reschedule your session, you may do so without any additional cost. Please contact me immediately if we need to discuss additional dates for your photos!
All of my baby wraps, headpieces and clothing are carefully washed in Baby Dreft after each session. All props are disinfected with baby-safe disinfectant after each session. My gear is routinely sanitized as well.
Thank you for your honesty and cooperation in keeping families safe and well. I’m honored to capture these priceless memories for you and your family!
